I am looking for a finance application that is similar to "SPB Finance" for my Pocket PC.

That program is simply money tracking with various graphs for a visual account of where your money is going. I don't need one for business management or anything like that.

I personally have never used SPB Finance, However I use gnucash for basic financial tracking. It pretty much has all the necessary functionality one would need to track money and can import your bank statements as well as generate basic graphs

#sudo apt-get install gnucash

if you don't like it...

#sudo apt-get purge gnucash


You could also try the forums over at and ask there, see if anyone has a better suggestion.

I have tried that actually and found that it was difficult to use and promptly removed it. I strongly recommend SPB Finance for your smartphone – Doug Clement Mar 8 '12 at 6:56
I'll give it a look on my Android phone. Thanks for the recommendation! – sfeole Mar 9 '12 at 3:13
